Borrow library equipment

We have a range of electronic and audio-visual resources available for you to borrow.

Our electronic and audiovisual equipment needs to be reserved in advance.

To ensure your safety we have a process in place to clean equipment. We advise planning ahead to make sure equipment will be available when you need it.

For further information contact us on

Laptops, chargers and cables

Laptops should be booked in advance using our Media Loans booking system. Booked laptops can be picked up at our Information Services desk in Fountains. 

When you borrow a laptop you will be able to keep it for one week. At the end of the week you must return the laptop to the Library. It is not possible to renew laptops as they are in high demand. 

For the time being, our laptop loan lockers in Fountains and Holgate are not in use. 

To request accessories such as cables and chargers please ask us when picking up your laptop. We can also lend you chargers and cables if you are working at one of our bookable study spaces.

iPads, recorders and video cameras

The Media Loans system allows students and staff on the York campus to book iPads, recorders, video cameras, and other electronic and audiovisual equipment well in advance of when it is needed.

You can also:

  • Check on availability and loan periods for equipment
  • Get a reminder in your calendar to pick up your equipment, and get an email when it is due
  • Get email notification of overdue items
  • Check the status of your account, including bookings and fines

Book equipment by going to the Media Loans Service.

Sign in using your usual York St John username and password, then place your booking. Items can be picked up from the Information Services desk in Fountains Learning Centre.
